THIS IS EPISODE 165 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
London Fletcher played 16 seasons in the NFL with the Rams, Bills and Redskins from 1998-2013. He is a four-time Pro Bowler who was a member of the 1999 Rams team that won Super Bowl XXXIV.
He played his college football at Division III John Carroll, where he was an All-American. He was undrafted and signed with the Rams as a free agent in 1998. He would make the team out of training camp and never miss a game in his entire 16-year career. He’s one of only five players in the history of the NFL to play in more than 250 consecutive games (256).
Fletcher is currently working at CBS Sports as an NFL analyst, and just recently was named a nominee for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2019.
In Part 1 of a two-part podcast, we talk with Fletcher about being nominated for the Hall of Fame, growing up in a very tough environment in Cleveland, Ohio, and how he overcame family tragedy to pursue a football career.
